Senator Addabbo Secures Tenants’ Right to Access Local Courts for Housing Complaints Against Landlords

Queens, NY, June 4, 2010 -- Renters who are cheated out of their security deposits will have an easier time taking the landlord to small claims court, says Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach).

 Because of legislation (S4781A) passed by the Senate Democratic Majority, tenants can go to court where their apartment is located, rather than where the landlord’s business is registered. A judge, in a recent ruling (Solomon v. Correll), had urged the state legislature to address this problem. The bill is awaiting final action in the NYS Assembly.
